Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's post is all about using 6x6 Designer Series Paper, (DSP).  Last week I showed how to use one 6x6 piece of paper and wrap it around a notecard.  I do this when there is a neat pattern on the paper or its simply too gorgeous to cut up, I want to see more of it on the card!  :)   The Stampin' Up!® artists create a painting and then its made into the DSP.  The artwork on the 12x12 paper is often so beautiful I don't want to cut it up!  This is crazy you say, it's just paper :)  and yes you're correct.  So today's post is about cutting the fabulous dsp :)

I provided instructions for the cards on my Facebook Live video today, please find that link here, Lesley's StampinTrix video

For today's first two cards I started by cutting 1 1/4 inch from one side of the 6x6 piece of dsp.  Then I cut the remaining piece as follows:


1st card:

Basic White Note Card

3 7/16 x 4 15/16 Magenta Madness Cardstock (CS) layer

3 1/4 x 4 3/4  Expressions in Ink DSP


2nd card:

Basic White Note Card

2 7/8 x 4 7/8 Evening Evergreen CS layer

2 3/4 x 4 3/4 Expressions in Ink DSP





3rd card:

4 1/2 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White Cardstock

4 1/8 x 5 3/8  Basic White CS layer embossed with Painted Texture Embossing Folder

Strips of various sizes left over from the DSP:  I used a 1 1/4 inch strip from the DSP cut into a 1/2 inch piece and a 3/4 of an inch piece.  As well, I used the leftover 1 inch piece from last weeks project,  you can find it here, Thanks Note Card.  And a 1 inch piece of Magenta Madness CS

1/2 strip of Basic White for the sentiment.


Enjoy and have a super day!
